The Field Sparrows would be out and both singing their dawn songs which was a treat to hear as I don't hear it that often as well as a very vocal Northern Flicker and many others. I'd spend about 15 minutes in one spot searching for an oriole and then decided to explore some and head by the water as I have yet to see a Bald Eagle this year believe it or not. There'd be no eagle so decided to look in the ponds for another bird I have yet to list- American Black Duck.
It would still be early so decided to head toward Sterling in hopes of finding a mom and pop shop for some chow as I was getting pretty hungry. About a quarter mile or so from Gate 28, I'd see a sign for fresh eggs and honey and would do a quick You Turn as I knew right then and there what I wanted for breakfast!
Inspired by my stop at the farm stand as well as all the motherly love I witnessed I headed home to do some baking and cooking for me and the boys (and their friends who always seem to be around.)
And this would be the end result. Cast iron corn bread (the only way to cook it) for that delicious strawberry jam, hickory smoked bacon and of course the farm fresh eggs which were out of this world.
And course two would be fresh baked bread of course! As you can see my vow to give up wheat has been a total failure but hell, how can it not when one has jam!
Take care all.
